An interesting question has come up in another thread: If you've purchased (and received) a new MacBook Pro Retina Display, was it shipped with a Thunderbolt Gigabit Ethernet Adapter? The Apple Store lists it as an available accessory and does not show it among the items "in the box". Still, when I received my MBPr, it included one of the adapters. The "Designed by Apple in California" package was die-cut to accommodate the adapter. Mine was ordered as a build to order with 768GB SSD and shipped on June 27th. At least one other member bought a new MBPr from a retail store prior to that date and it did not have an adapter. So... an informal survey: If you have a new MBPr, please tell us if it came with an adapter and what date it was shipped.
